Years ago our wardrobes included something we in Calgary termed “buffet pants.” Drapy evening pants with elastic in the back of the waist and plenty of gathers. We thought they looked “elegant” with a pair of high heels and a black sweater. The key benefit of the style was that they were comfortable no matter how many times you visited the chocolate fountain. In homage to buffet pants everywhere, I give you my buffet dress.
Last summer I made up Simplicity 8138, a simple hi-lo top. Now that summer is almost here, I’m wearing it more. So I decided to make it again!
